@Nosce I agree with you. I think it's kind of poetic language... so I'm wondering if it is not weird in terms of lyrics, and how you explain it. I understand it like "people tell me sky is the limit, but I can go higher". Does it make sense?
@r_h_goddard I would think so. perhaps "up like a satellite" or "high like a satellite" might be clearer. If I had to guess—this was not written by a native speaker. However, it can depend on the genre of music. For instance, rap tends to be very relaxed with syntax and word choice, for the sake of poetic language.
@Nosce yes the songwriter is not a native speaker... and I meant it would be "I can go higher, I'm on the satellite" and I imagined that they(singers) sit on the satellite. (I know they can't do that in reality, but just like a fantasy genre anime lol). Thank you for your reply!
